Food was ok. The one girl who appeared on her own to serve was nice enough. The menu wasn't up to date and too many times to count we ordered food which she had to come back and say wasn't there. They didn't even have coffee beans for some coffees which was disappointing. The food itself was ok, I have... More

Had a great night in the Bucks (Sat 5/9/15) for hubbys birthday. We had a meal first in the lounge, which was delicious, and then we went into the bar for drinks. It was really busy because it was the Strathaven show that day. Staff coped well and despite being run off their feet, they were still efficient and friendly.

Went in for lunch, ordered the steak pie. Is safe to say I am very impressed with the portion size and the wonderful flavours. Hands up to the new chef really knows what he's doing :) Staff were pleasant, smiley and went out their way to help. #pleasesiriwantsomemore

Good pub to visit for a quick drink. Cheap drink and very friendly staff especially the manageress. Never stayed in the hotel so unable to comment on rooms. Food looks reasonable as is the price.

Me and my partner ate on a very rainy Monday evening... We were greeted by a nice waitress. Unfortunately there was a good number of things they had ran out of... But fortunately they have a very large menu so we didn't struggle to find something we liked! The meal was better than we had anticipated! Very good pub grub!... More

Stopped here while working in the area and was impressed with the quality of the room for the cost. Room is more like a suite with a separate sitting area with a sofa and a large bathroom with a really good shower. Although there is no wifi in the rooms it's free in the bar (good excuse for a drink... More
